Its goal is to be a resource where Marxist-Leninists can discuss and apply their science to all fields of study. It will contain articles that are of particular interest to Marxist scholars, both Communist and non-Communist. “Communist Forum,” will present programmatic materials from or about Communist political organizations from different countries.

The website will provide a serious analysis of the contemporary human condition, as well as contributing to the ongoing development of the Marxist-Leninist tradition.
In this endeavor, are guided by one simple editorial policy: promoting the growth, development and influence of the Marxist-Leninist thought and movement. While we recognize that Marxism-Leninism must be refreshed and reinvigorated, we are dubious of the academically fashionable trend to “rethink”, “reinvent”, or cosmetically “legitimize” Marxism. Most of these revisions are transparent efforts to create a respectable Marxism, a Marxism without revolutionary vigor.
We welcome, on the other hand, contributions that demonstrate a creative, innovative application of Marxist-Leninism to today’s world. We seek clear and popular expositions of theory and partisan, but rigorous, defenses of Marxist-Leninist foundations.
